HOW TO: CARE FOR PATENT LEATHER

Sad news - I've managed to damage a gorgeous pair of my nude patent leather shoes. It was so devastating to me that I thought I'd share the story with you so you don't have the same experience.

It seems that leaving my nude patent leather unprotected against another darker coloured material has caused the nude patent leather to absorb some of the darker colour, irreversibly marking the material which was totally devastating. I tried every piece of advice - rubbing with non-acetone nail polish remover, vegetable oil, toothpaste - but the stain is too deep to come out.

So, my advice to you is prevention: if you have patent leather shoes (particularly in a light colour) please make sure you keep them in their shoe bag and preferably in a shoe bag like our latest one that has a divider inside the bag to keep the shoes from pressing directly against one another!
